Once Steam controller supports Android via USB OTG (Steam forum discussion 1, Steam forum discussion 2), UtorCase will turn your Steam controller and your Amazon Kindle Fire HD into a handheld game console by mounting the phone on the controller. (According to my research Amazon Kindle Fire HD does not support USB OTG out of the box required for Android gaming, but you may have a chance to enable it with root access. For a list of phones that have out of the box USB OTG support click here).
- Secure 4 sided grip of your smartphone ( most competitors only provide a 2 sided grip )
- Tailor made exactly for your Amazon Kindle Fire HD ( no need to adjust unversal holding arms hoping that buttons aren't in the way)
- Single unit without extra parts, such as rubber bands
- Easily and quickly mount the phone on the controller
- Conveniently use second screen apps that support landscape mode
- Also compatible with the Xbox One S controller
